Favorite Quote:
If you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for the shore.
-Ray Bradbury


There was an angry man,
Angry at another
For wronging him.
So then the man said to his lover
That he did not want her.
In result that woman went away,
Beholding only a world of gray.
To the child she had nothing to say,
Only a look and many tears.
The child grew up in fear,
Asking a question that never got answered:
"Why isn't my father here?"
